I was just at the co-op. "Massaged kale" for $15.99 pound. Are you shitting me?

At that price you had better get a happy ending with your greens.

I recently paid cash for a new (to me) car. As a result, my checking account is quite a bit lower than I'm used to seeing. I know I'm not in any real danger, but it's still a bit disconcerting. I grew up very poor, and so I've come to appreciate the security of having a good amount of savings.

I have like 10k in receivables but who knows when they will get here.
Nah it makes sense. I don't really need to worry cause I know every 2 weeks more skrilla will hit the bank account. Owning your own business is way different.

This is surely the sign of a wise man.

I'm moving in a week so I'm trying to empty my pantry by eating two cans of Amy's Organic Soup right now and I'm sweating my fucking balls off.

As of late, people have asked me via e-mail to do favors for them. (Not that kind of favors, come on.) And then I take a fair bit of time out of my busy schedule to do the favor. And then they don't say thank you. I wonder what that's all about?

What's a checking account?

The key to not being other people's bitch at work is to keep a Foreman Grill on your desk, so that no matter how little shit you've actually got to do, you've still gotta keep an eye on them chicken tenders for the next 30-45 minutes until they're white all the way through.

What I found out yesterday is that I was never in fact brought equal to my colleague. He's not making a ton more than me, but it's really the principle of the thing.

this blows, brother. I think it's high time you do something about it. like maybe cutting the brake line of your colleague's vehicle. or putting a bucket of ted drewe's on top of his office door.

This seems to be the goal of a majority of people (including my sibs who are mainly much older than me) where I grew up. My sister and her husband retired when he was 60 and she was 58. They sit around in their small shack of a house in a little town and spend an hour each day rolling their own smokes. They dress like shit (well, that's nothing new as they always dressed like shit) and drive a 15 year old Ford pickup. If they go out it's to the local Legion on fish fry night or something like that. Their annual vacation is to drive said pickup to Florida and live in a shitty motel for three weeks every winter.

I could go on with more examples but you get the idea.

this. I don't mind working at all. I've always go by the idea that I hire people to worry and stress about problems for me anyway, and as long as I earn enough and get enough vacation time (which I do not enjoy atm) then I don't see myself sitting at home fixing my 15 year old Ford pickup.

And at least at the studio where my daughter dances, the moms - while perhaps not who I otherwise would choose to hang out with - are not nearly as bad as the ones on the reality shows. Some of them are actually perfectly nice people.

The out-of-town stuff is more of a drag, especially since my daughter is now old enough that men are (appropriately) excluded from the dressing rooms, so I am hanging around but largely useless because I can't really help with hair/make-up/costumes, etc. But it's still important to her for me to be accessible, so it's not like I can drop her off and then go spend the day reading and maintaining a nice buzz by the pool. It can feel pretty claustrophobic, and the feeling of entire days being completely pissed away drives me nuts. (Of course, they aren't really being pissed away - they are being spent showing up for my daughter, so big picture there's no more important or productive way to spend them. But small picture immediate-experiencewise, it's a lot of standing around in air-conditioned, flourescent-lit hotel ballrooms or hallways, hovering near electrical outlets so my phone battery doesn't crap out and leave me music-less halfway through the day, thinking about how much work and/or fun stuff I otherwise could be getting done. baldy[1].gif)

man I honestly feel for you, ld. you're a great dad.

damn this stock market. few days of recovery and it all crumbles down in one swoop. I am the poorz again dammit!

oh, and I've been meaning to watch superman since last weekend. and the wife has begged off for different reasons several times. she's not much into movies, but I asked her and she said yes so I'm sorta committed to watch it with her instead of me planning to watch it with friends. women.

Think about another way you could interpret the words that lawyerdad quoted. smile.gif

(I got it because it happens to me sometimes too.)

I'm annoyed that the ridiculous media feeding frenzy is making me feel sympathy for Paula fucking Deen. Some hysterical white lady files a weak lawsuit and her attorney decides to blackmail Deen with a bunch of unrelated shit about how she's used the dreaded "n-word" some time in the last 70 years. The entire country just falls right into line and expresses their over the top outrage and gets a sweet, sweet hit of self righteousness based endorphins.
